Dialogue[edit]

Upon activating Dragon Stance
Glint: It has been too long, allow me to act!
Glint: Our moment has finally come!

Idle conversations[edit]

Glint: Everything has unfolded as I knew it would.
<Character name>: Yes, well...sadly, the world remains a dangerous place. (asura)
<Character name>: You keep me alive, I'll keep making a difference. (charr)
<Character name>: Sadly, the world remains a dangerous place. (human, norn, or sylvari)

Notes[edit]

  • Facets are similar in design to signets of other classes, having a passive (upkeep) and active (consume) effects, as well as similar icon artwork.
  • In order to display the status of Herald skills, whenever any of the skills is in aura mode, a dragon sigil appears underneath the character, displaying all 6 possible aura skills with the active ones highlighted. This information is visible to other players as well as the Revenant.
  • Applies the Legendary Dragon Stance (effect).png Legendary Dragon Stance effect.

Trivia[edit]

  • All of the Legendary Dragon category skills, including the Herald profession mechanic Facet of Nature, are named after bosses found in Glint's Lair.
  • While any of the Facets is active, an arrangement of a Guild Wars music theme called 'Crystal Oasis' will subtly and intermittently play in the background. The more facets are active, the clearer and less intermittent the song is. This sound is affected by the player instrument slider.
